Padres Hit By COVID-19 Concerns, 5 Players Out, Beat Rockies

The San Diego Padres already were minus star Fernando Tatis Jr. and two backups before the first pitch at Colorado because of COVID-19 concerns. Then they needed to pull Wil Myers and Eric Hosmer in the middle of the game for virus-related reasons.

The Padres wound up beating the Rockies 8-1, boosted by Manny Machado’s home run and five RBIs. But they suddenly found themselves in a precarious position with so many players out of action.

Manager Jayce Tingler says he anticipates the shorthanded Padres being able to play Wednesday’s doubleheader at Coors Field as expected.
